    E39 530i sport dsc error 108 sn-control

    Mine was down to low brake fluid one of the hoses was weeping and that resulted in the abs light on the dashboard along with the error code, after replacement it’s been fine ever since

    Mid panel drama

    So my mid pixles were dead, I couldn’t be bothered doing the repair ribbon stuff, as I just want it in for another year or so and then I’m going to put a decent android install in, so I bought a good used replacement one and the pixles are spot on! anyway I noticed when I removed the volume knob on the replacement the Allen screw is missing so although the unit is working well, if I latch it into the dash I see no way of ever getting it out in the future! anyone know of another way it can be removed if there’s no screw? Only I’ve informed the seller and he’s been cool so far but I’m not gonna put it in my dash unless I know a sure way I can remove it again!

    Lcm coding advice

    I don’t believe the lcm4 auto will control a manual car from other discussions I’ve read as it doesn’t have the extra gear inside to operate the wheel on the dash for the levelling however I could be wrong! its coded up fine, used expert 4.0.1 profile no issues no errors, did the vin and millage first as usual in bmw scanner etc it’s just the lights when I push down on the car the lights are not moving or levelling as they should, but the coding looks fine, the old lcm despite it lighting up lights with ignition off didn’t have this issue

    Lcm coding advice

    I’ve done the nts coding and when checked in pa soft all the correct coding is there, I thought when coding the lcm even tho it was issued for man could be used for auto lwr as the car has a separate lwr module for the self levelling.

    Lcm coding advice

    That’s the thing I’m attempting a man lcm into an auto lwr levelling car, it’s coded in nts well no errors, and works as it should But I’m pretty certain at present the lcm isn’t acting on the self levelling set up, so just wondered if there were anyways after coding to further get this going or if the man lcm cannot get coded to work the auto lwr, I’ve read you can go man ecu on auto but never auto on man as the lcm doesn't have the components to drive the wheel to adjust the lights on manual cars as only lcm man have that but usually the man part gets disabled and the lcm just goes through the auto separate lwr module, but in my case it looks like it hadn’t so just need to know how to code that last bit in!

    Lcm coding advice

    My lcm 4b packed in (xenon issued car with self levelling lights) anyway got a replacement lcm out of one of my other cars as I had a spare 3 and the car I question didn’t have the light sensor so whilst the 4 defo has the option for that I decided to use that, however the new lcm I’m using is for manual level aim, as I understand it manual lcm have extra components within the lcm for the roller wheel on the dash to function where as the self level has it’s own control system anyway I’ve put the lcm in and coded it up in nts and it’s working great no faults and operating well, apart from the self level headlights, I’ve been into pa soft after using nts to see if the coding had ticked the xenon light option and it all looks ok, however the lights don’t seem to be auto adjusting, so just wondered if there was a way to code this function back in or will I need an auto level labelled lcm? I read that it can be coded to a manual but manual can’t be coded to an auto one if that’s correct id just like to know what program and option I need to enable to get it tip top!
  8. more than likely with a set of turbines on it!

    Alternative seats for an e39.

    Nothing bolts up to the e39 other than e38 seats unfortunately but stuff can be modded to fit like any other car setup, recaros from Audi or another make would go nice in a e39

    Alternative seats for an e39.

    Audi recaros are also an option but require subframes etc to fit but there similar to the seats Found in the alpina b10 that has factory recaros M5 seats are also a nice upgrade but pricy these days

    530i cats

    With where they cats are at the bottom of the manifold it’s unlikely they’ll go to effort although you never know! But it’s much more work than the usual victims like jazz and Prius

    Headlight adjuster saga and thanks to a member

    No probs mate and thanks for the kind comments, and it was decent luck the dpd one turned up today a week late, so at least it wasn’t a total loss! if anyone else fancies adjusters doing and or lenses or even lighting projector upgrades/cotton rings etc just pm for info or if anyone fancies having a go them selves happy to help and advise etc.
